View Full Version : pony names

We try to stick to popular story books for our pony names . . .
Looks like we will be getting 2, maybe 3 new ponies soon.
We already have
Charlotte's Web (Charlotte)
Ordinary Miracle (Fern)
I think we have exhausted the Charlotte's web theme. . . no other cute names I like from that story. Anybody have any other suggestions from children's books?
We are thinking of Stella from (stellaluna), Beezus (Ramona and Beezus, etc.

Most likely they will be mares. . .I know we are crazy!
If we do get a gelding. . . his name will probably be templeton to keep with the Charlotte's web theme!
I do love all the other suggestions though! and I love Fancy Nancy too, just don't know if I could call the pony Nancy as a barn name lol! I really like Alice too!

I was going to say "Stellaluna", but you've got that one...How about Huckleberry Finn?

In keeping with the Charlotte's Web theme — Templeton, as in Templeton the Rat. Great name for a naughty pony.

We had a lovely Pippi Longstocking with two hind stockings. I love Amelia Bedelia and have not seen a pony with that name. ( Stellaluna too)

My daughter loves the book series (1st grade) about a cat that thinks he's a chiwawa. The books are named after the character:

My own pony was named Spit-spot, which is from Mary Poppins. She's rounding up the kids and says something along the lines of "Alright children, let's get this room cleaned up. Spit-spot!"
We called her Spitty. And it fit. :winkgrin:
